27 I tell you all this secretly,[a] but I want you to tell it publicly.[b] Whatever I tell you privately,[c] you should shout for everyone to hear.[d]

28 “Don’t be afraid of people. They can kill the body, but they cannot kill the soul. The only one you should fear is God, the one who can send the body and the soul to be destroyed in hell. 29 When birds are sold, two small birds cost only a penny. But not even one of those little birds can die without your Father knowing it.
